Special Interest Group

Collaborative Channels: Engaging the Stakeholders

The Language and Culture Commission of Com.It.Es. San Francisco is proud to present the 3rd edition of Every Child Conference. 

Since 2017, Every Child annual conference aims to empower adults who surround our children on their role in children’s wellbeing within all areas of their growth and development, as well as to attest to the public’s growing awareness of Every Child’s basic rights. In the past two years, Comites SF partnered with Early Days Autism Center and Every Child to bring together two conferences focused on two different topics: child-centered approaches of education, and social and emotional development. 

This year, Every Child’s topic will be focused on “Collaborative Channels”. Communication is a two-way street that plays a key role in creating and fostering strong, positive relationships in the dialogue on inclusion between all the stakeholders: the world of research and the world of intervention, the community, the schools, and our homes.  The purpose of Every Child 2019 is to create a collaborative channel to guide, manage, and improve communication by offering a series of events to engage the community and disseminate the Every Child mission.
